Mold spores are found everywhere in the outside air. The problem starts when the mold spores begin to grow inside our home or workplace. Often all that is needed is a moisture source.
One type of mold in the home that can go unnoticed for months, even years, is attic mold. If left unchecked, mold in the attic can cause all kinds of problems. This is primarily because a moldy attic is an indicator of another potentially serious problem – excess moisture.
High levels of attic moisture; due to inadequate attic ventilation combined with building moisture sources like plumbing leaks, leaks from ice dams, roof failure, chronic or single-event wet basement, are likely to cause excessive moisture and wet conditions in an attic.
Visible mold may appear on wood surfaces such as on rafters or roof sheathing in your attic. Hidden mold may be present and may be even more of a problem if it forms in insulation or in the ducts of your air conditioning or heating system.
Mold exposure is a very serious health concern. If mold is not properly cleaned and removed by an experienced flood company, inhaling it could cause you and your family health problems, respiratory issues and severe sickness such as: asthma, dizziness, allergies, coughing and nose bleeds. If the mold infestation is excessive, it can make the entire home uninhabitable.
Attic Mold Removal
No attic mold removal project will be successful unless you correct the conditions that caused mold growth in the first place. An expert inspection and report should be performed to locate and recommend remedies for attic mold remediation and repairing building exterior conditions that perpetuate moisture seepage, mold, or mildew growth.
